To put a twist on it:

If you choose one dish to eat for the rest of your life (same dish every meal), what would it be? I was going to ask what your final dish would be (as on death row), but that sounded far too depressing for a new year.

I thought I would start this thread when Pixie mentioned she is having risotto with prawns and asparagus tonight which I absolutely love, and that got me thinking what if anything else, I prefer.

Roast lamb with garlic, beef rib roast with horseradish, lasagne, crispy skinned duck, cheese risotto, fois gras and ice cream all feature highly, but in the end it has to be:

Prawn risotto for me (or a variation + or - other seafood/asparagus etc).

So what would you go for (and lets forget about potential nutritional issues)

Spaghetti Carbonara, Ice Cream, Lasagne and Chips, Fruit Cake & Tea Loaf, Omelette Arnold Bennett, Christmas Pudding & Brandy Sauce, medium rare Steak with Beer Battered Onion Rings, Mushrooms and Chips, Old Fashioned English Sherry Trifle (it must have a Jelly layer!), .....(*drool).....and an All-I-Can Eat bowl of Milk Chocolate Brazils!!! ;o>

Actually, there was a couple of "Your last supper" threads started by The Leveller ages ago on the Food Forum, Bearman, that some of us contributed to - but surprize! suprize! - we all completely lost the plot very quickly!!!.....and it might just possibly have been my fault entirely!!! :o>

I'll link the three threads together, so that some of us can look back and have a giggle over our choices, and also to see out of curiosity if we have changed our preferences since then -

I missed the "Your last supper" thread - it may have been before I stripped off and dived into the warm bubbly waters of this forum. Who up for skinny dipping in custard?

Ooh now there's a question! I'm going to have to ponder this one as one of the main things I love about cooking is being able to have new things all the time, I wonder how long even a favourite would be a favourite before I got bored?? Perhaps a roast chicken? With trimmings??

Birds Custard? - the Original powdered one?....."last one in is a rotten egg!!!" ;o>

l always wondered what it would be like to swim in jello (jelly to y'all). In summer, cold jelly would be quite an experience. Would you float? No matter, you could eat your way out.

As for my favourite dish, I've always had trouble with that until I tasted Tarka Dal. That's definitely my fave, either the way I make it, or the way it's made in our local Indian place.

DH seems to think we are going there for lunch on Twelfth Night. It's always a struggle whether to eat something different that I can't make at home, or to choose what I love, like DH does. He will order either Butter Chicken or Chicken Tikka. I will swither.

Bearman says:
NO! Real custard, made with eggs - the type you can see the vanilla seeds in.

Ori, I don't think you can swim in jello - its probably not possible to do much more than to roll around in/on it. Ladies wrestling in it is apparently actively encouraged

I prefer Birds so I'll have to pass on the skinny dip then - sorry! ;o>

In reply to an earlier post on 2 Jan 2013 14:39:14 GMT
It's no problem to make a batch of Bird's as well, y'know.

Su\zy I still make the Birds type of Custard (NOT instant) You can make it as thick as you like andadd as much sugar as you like (Not hardly any please)

That is exactly how I make it too, Scarlet! - I can't stand the Instant either - it is always over-sweet and often made with lots of cream too which I just don't like. I use it virtually unsweetened as the Pud that goes with it will usually be sweet enough. I've tried Bearman's idea of 'Real Custard' but I just can't take to a runny eggy sauce being passed off as Custard? - it simply HAS to be Birds to be the REAL deal!!!.....x

A pity they don't make the green peppermint custard we used to have at school.

Blurk! I prefered the pink one!

Ivan says:
I never knew anyone at school who didn't like it. I didn't mind the pink one also.

I was a strange kid Ivan...I loved School dinners....meat pie was lush. We hardly ever had chips and our mash never had lumps in it!

Same here it was the only thing I liked about school. We never had chips once from the infants to the time I left school.
